Lahore is the capital of the Punjabi region in Pakistan, and the bustling metropolis lies toward the center of the country's southern border with India. It's famous for art, cuisine, and culture. If ancient Eastern cultures intrigue you, then Lahore vacations are for you.
Book your Lahore vacation packages and you won't run out of things to do and see. Since the city has been around for a millennium, many cultural influences are evident. Ancient Mughal buildings include Badshahi Mosque, Lahore Fort, and the walled city. View Colonial buildings like the Lahore High Court, General Post Office, Lahore Railway Station, and Lahore Museum, constructed during the time of British rule. Nature lovers will want to rent a car in Lahore to visit Shalimar Gardens, and the Lahore Zoo, the fourth-oldest zoo in the world. To understand the role religion plays in Lahore culture, visit some of the hundreds of mosques, churches, and temples that dot the city.
In a city of almost seven million people, there are different festivals and events held throughout the year. One of the biggest—the Basant Kite Festival—is held in February, and celebrates the coming spring. You need only look out the window of your hotel in Lahore to see the sky peppered with kites. Because the kites are traditionally flown with razor wire, to cut another kite free of its line in the competition, this festival has been both banned and revived over the years. It is one of the biggest festivals in India and not to be missed. Springtime offers Lahore Fashion Week and summer is the time of the Shandur Cup Polo Tournament. The Urs of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai Festival is a vibrant winter festival celebrating the death of the beloved Sindh poet.
